Building Geographic Literacy : An Interactive Approach
This combined textbook and interactive workbook is designed for any course in geography, history, political science, global studies, or multicultural studies that places an emphasis on maps. It enables students to learn place geography - and, as they learn it, to reinforce and apply their knowledge by constructing thematic maps which convey physical, economic, cultural, or political characteristics of places. "Building Geographic Literacy" can be used with any current standard world atlas or geography textbook. This edition includes material on population geography, migration patterns, and economic development issues, thematic maps for students to construct, and questions.
